Microsoft Viva: Strengthening Companies’ Employees & Their Experience

Microsoft’s Solution for Empowering Employees  

A key component for a strong business foundation is built through encouraging connections. Though that can be difficult with the decrease of face-to-face communication due to a large amount of the workforce moving to a hybrid state. Managers must adapt and support their employees when change happens. When they do, it provides a strong internal connection and can strengthen and grow a business. With the Microsoft Viva Platform, managers can connect with employees whether they are in-office, hybrid or remote and improve the internal company experience.
